I wanted to create a canvas as a gift for a friend who loved butterflies. As soon as I saw the new JOFY stamps I knew that the butterflies were the perfect ones for my canvas.
I started off my adding paper lace trims and scraps of picture wheel. I then painted the canvas completely and added painted images to the background. I highlighted some of these using a black pencil.
The butterflies were stamped onto Clearly for Art and painted (painstakingly) and cut out once dry. They were then heated and moulded to give the wings some movement.
I added scraps of painted rulers and a few metal trinkets and Prima findings. I added a word using Tim Holtz letters.
I kept the images fairly simple as I wanted the butterflies to be the main attraction of the canvas.
I am sure the recipient will love it (or at least I am banking on the fact that she does!!).
Thanks for stopping by....
